Pat Detmer is an award-winning humor columnist, copywriter, and speaker who has been published in newspapers, including the Seattle Times and The Whidbey Island Marketplace. She has also appeared in Newsweek and currently writes a column for the Newcastle News.
She’s won or placed in fiction contests, most of them having to do with speed (24-hour from topic assignment to finished piece), brevity (100-word and 200-word shorts), or scenarios where the characters are already established and full-blown (three appearances in Star Trek’s Strange New Worlds short story anthologies.)

Pat and her husband are founders of The Quincy Group, a business consulting and brokering company.
